The following materials, links and resources are designed to support your transition from KS4 to KS5 and to help you in preparing for your new course.

You should try to absorb all the 'watch it' and 'read it' materials as these have been chosen by your KS5 subject teachers specifically to support your new subjects.

All students will need to complete the KS5 Transition task for Music in full.

The KS5 transition task will need to be handed in to your subject teacher on or before your first lesson in September. These tasks will help you in preparing for your new subjects but will also help teachers to make sure you are suited for these subjects.

With this in mind, all KS5 Transition tasks should be completed to the highest standard possible.
